    whoever said we want to go back to communism......or even the socialism of days past....whoever said that because someone wants justice they have to go back to what we did before, you say there are no free lunches... well at the moment certain groups are getting free lunches, for example, haredi groups and religious people that get bituach leumi benefits for NOT working... these of course are NOT things we need in a welfare state, we need a government that rewards the people that are actually working their asses off....without corruption..... these people want equality, not to be treated like garbage, not to be paid just bare minimum and then have to spend it all just on rent.....or food.... while a top few percent bathe in billions....... another thing that the "capitalist" economics has done, is along the years further stratify the socio economic differrences....with the bottom percent getting poorer and larger and the top percent getting richer and smaller.......... is socialism the answer, not neccessarily, but just because capitalism has worked better, as you say" Certain conclusions have been empirically established. " this radical stratification is one peice of evidence to show that it DOESNT work. and if you understand scientific theory, you"ll know that all you need is one peice of evidence to debunk all previous findings.................. so lets stop complaining about what doesnt work, and, as you say "evovle" into proper economic, and social equality
